Quidditch has been played before…on the ground. A fairly boring sport to watch, you may have seen Middlebury College play it or seen it in the movie ‘The Internship’. Either way, people run around on the ground with brooms between their legs and throw balls through hoops. It’s definitely not the most exciting of sports…until you make it skydiving quidditch.
Enter Colombian telecommunications company Empresa de Telecomunicaciones de Bogotá (ETB). They decided Quidditch needed to be taken to the next level…the real level….the flying level. They got together a group of skydivers/harry potter enthusiast and gave them some costumes, brooms, a quaffle (the balls Quidditch is played with) and a hoop. Watch the epicness unfold below:
The cinematography is great, making it feel even more epic than it already is. The costumes, goggles and movement throughout the film really make it feel like an intense game is being played. Before having to pull their shoots, one member actually manages to score a point by throwing the quaffle through the hoop. Pretty incredible!
